Fresh Lemonade

For ~ 1 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 cups cold water to dilute
  • slices of lemon (optional)

Recipe:

  1. Heat sugar and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan till sugar dissolves completely
  2. Add in a couple slices of lemon while the sugar is dissolving
  3. Extract 1 cup of lemon juice (4-6 lemons)
  4. Bring out a glass pitcher/jar/container, add in the cup of lemon juice, 3 cups of cold water and the syrup from step 1+2
  5. Refrigerate for 40 minutes – 1 hour before serving
  6. Serve with ice and sliced lemon
  7. Bon appétit! ;)

Serving suggestions:  summer …

NOTES: I used slightly less than 3/4 cup of sugar, but use up to 1 cup if you are feeling sweet. Heating up a couple slices of lemon along with the sugar syrup adds depth to the flavor.  Don’t forget to drain out the seeds but leave the pulp alone ;). I heart my lemonade!
